Melbourne Criminal Defense



Central Florida Criminal Defense.  Criminal Defense in Melbourne, and surrounding areas, and Brevard County Criminal Defense. Melbourne is a relatively large and populated city in Brevard County just southeast of Orlando, Florida. Melbourne is ridden with a high drug crime rate, and because of this Melbourne also has a high degree of theft and property crime.  Because of this, it is not uncommon that citizens will find themselves in need of a Melbourne Drug Attorney or Brevard County Drug Attorney.  In addition to the Highway Patrol and Brevard County Sheriff's Office, Melbourne has its own police force, the Melbourne Police Department.


Because of the police presence, there are invariably a high amount of Melbourne arrests.  The most common criminal offenses that we see in the city of Melbourne are: driving with a suspended license, marijuana possession, possession of cocaine (frequently crack cocaine), drug dealing and drug trafficking offenses (mostly marijuana, cocaine, or molly), DUI, and gun charges.  The Melbourne Police Department is a highly effective Law Enforcement Agency, so if you have been arrested by CCPD, it is highly important that you do not provide them with any additional evidence that they can use against you at trial. 


If you have been arrested by the Melbourne Police Department you will most likely first be transported to one of three location: 1) The Brevard County Jail (for the vast majority of crimes, 2) The DUI breath center, or DUI mobile breath center (if you have been arrested for driving under the influence, or 3) An investigation station where the police will attempt to conduct an interrogation with you.  If the police are interested in conducting an interrogation of you, it is extremely important that you cooperate with any interview that they request, at this point you have already been arrested and any information that you may provide to them will lessen your legal defense at trial.  If you are arrested, and the police attempt to question you, invoke your Fifth Amendment right to remain silent and ask for an attorney.  At this point all questioning of you should cease according to the law.


If you have been arrested for a criminal offense in Melbourne, it is very important to invoke your legal rights and to reach out to a Melbourne Criminal Defense Lawyer as soon as possible.  Whether your Melbourne criminal offense is: a Melbourne murder charge, Melbourne driving with a suspended license, Melbourne dui, Melbourne robbery, Melbourne theft, or any Melbourne drug crimes, does not change the circumstances of your Brevard County Criminal Defense.  Contact Brian Byrd, at ByrdLaw, PA Criminal Defense for a free consultation in reference to your Melbourne criminal offense.
